Meet Macy Griswold!
Macy is going to be helping us taking candids at the 2017 Maine-Anjou & Chianina National Jr. Show in Hutchinson, Kansas. We think Macy is awesome and going to be a great asset to have in the ring getting candids! She shared a little bit about herself in a recent interview.
- Share a little bit about yourself.
My name is Macy Griswold, and I graduated from Oklahoma State University last December. While there, I studied animal science and agricultural communications, but fell in love with the communication classes. I live at home in Perkins, Okla. and have spent the last semester enjoying free time and furthering my photography business! I showed steers and heifers growing up and having the opportunity to take pictures at livestock shows has allowed me to stay in touch with a part of my life that I miss so much.
- How long have you been a photographer?
I received my first camera for Christmas 4 years ago and found a love and passion I never knew existed! I enjoy having people as my subject just as much as I enjoy livestock!
- What?s your favorite memory from your own years showing livestock?
I have many memories from my show career, but I would have to say all my favorites include family and friends. Banners are always fun to win, but the people truly make it memorable. However, a moment I will never forget is showing in the grand drive at the Oklahoma Youth Expo in 2012 and exhibiting the reserve grand champion steer.
- Why are you looking forward to the Maine/Chi Jr. Nationals?
I am looking forward to seeing old friends and making new friends at Maine/Chi Jr. Nationals. I am also looking forward to learning and bettering myself with Focus Marketing Group!
- Tell us something you think others would be surprised to know about you.
I judged on three judging teams in college! Meat, Livestock, and Meat Animal Evaluation
